The 5 Most Expensive Hermes Birkin Bags In The World
Hermes Birkin Bags have been the elite of luxury designer bags for a lot of years. Hermes Birkin bags are the most expensive bags in the world. They have sold the most expensive Hermes Birkin bag for 500,000$. Wondering why? Well, we are going to explain this later. First, let’s talk about Hermes Birkin Bag history.
This bag took her name from the English actress and singer Jane Birkin. All the magic happened in an Air France flight from Paris to London in the early 80s. Jane Birkin ended up sitting next to former Hermes chief executive, Jean-Louis Dumas. Birkin was always holding a straw basket.
During the flight, her stuff spilled out of her basket. She started complaining that she couldn’t find a bag she likes and fits all her stuff. Jean Louis Dumas suggested a bag with pockets, and then they start a conversation about the ideal accessory.
That’s how the most expensive bag in the world was born.
For the record, Jane Birkin owns only 5 Hermes Birkin bags. Noone of them is the most expensive Hermes Birkin bag in the world. She only uses one Birkin at a time and carries her bags until they wear out. She also decorates the pricy purses with stickers, pins, and strands of beads.
